“I almost died in Alaska last spring. After weeks in Haines things finally lined up and had 3 solid days of filming. The third day for reasons unknown, and being the third person to drop the whole slope let loose and I was caught in a massive avalanche. Just being in that situation was the worst I’ve ever had on skis.”
I think having a good helmet is key, as well as good goggles, but when they mesh really well together that for me is such a great combination.
Whistler, BC. If it is snow, or dirt, it really doesn’t get much better than riding here at home.
In a perfect world, I get up around 6 am, stretch and think about the day over a few cups of coffee, then get in the heli and spin laps for half a day. Then come back and go for a trail ride on my enduro bike. It’s a flow trail that is fast and smooth, broken up by some technical sections and big flowing jumps. To end the day we somehow end up at a right hand point break that starts off mellow but big walls, then ramps up and barrels through the mid section to the inside and get spit out the barrel as the sun dips below the horizon.
